Bobbin Lace - Belgian Cross

The bobbin, also commonly called bobbin lace, is simply a lace that has been created by hand, and is made of any Italian region. This lace compared to one made of macramé is very delicate and refined as it is to use a very thin cotton yarn and thus requires a lot of patience and practicality as well as years of experience in the industry.

The term incorporates both the lace pillow, is the instrument by which it is created. Often it used as a support tool like a pillow from the cylindrical shape, but you can also use a palette of wood or plywood.

The technique involves the pillow to support the design scheme that you want to achieve, and started performing strand of points that will determine the various parts of the design then switched to execute the plot using the bobbin, the so-called wooden sticks. Finally detach the lace from the support. If the motive is very complex it can be up to a hundred spindles. This technique was born around the fourteenth century, although it is now in decline.
